The NZ Cider Festival is the only dedicated Cider Festival in New Zealand. The festival aims to be an annual celebration of the diversity of Cider, including both Traditional and New World varieties from around the country. Festival attendees have the opportunity to sample a range of products from our Cider makers in a relaxed and friendly festival environment that incorporates local artisan food and great entertainment.
Back for its 6th year of celebrating New Zealand Cider, 2021 (now 12th Feb 2022) brings with it a number of exciting changes. The festival will be staged in the beautiful Hawkes Bay region at Tomoana Showgrounds, Hastings. The NZ Cider Festival showcases the finest award-winning ciders in NZ, all in one place!
In 2020 we welcomed over 3,000 Cider Lovers to the festival and we look forward to making this year even bigger and better!
